Senegal and Mauritania LNG Infrastructure Reverse Trade Mission and Business Briefing

Opportunity to Meet with
African Energy Decision-Makers

A delegation of public and private sector energy leaders from Senegal and Mauritania will be visiting the United States to meet with U.S. LNG suppliers, as well as U.S. equipment manufacturers, technology and service providers in for midstream and downstream gas infrastructure.

To prepare for domestic use and exportation of its gas resources, Senegal must develop its gas infrastructure including gas fired power plants, a floating liquefaction natural gas unit, and distribution systems. Senegal will begin importing LNG to meet near-term demand while domestic gas is developed over the course of the next 6-7 years. Both Senegal and Mauritania are interested in importing LNG in the near term to reduce energy costs and to expedite the build-out of gas infrastructure and allow for a quick transition to domestic gas once it is available.

As part of the RTM itinerary, USTDA will host a Business Briefing for U.S. companies in Houston on Tuesday, October 2, 2018.
